IV. white

„White“ is not a colour, a physicist would say. Are we talking about white light? The artists explore the effects of disorientation and fading contrasts in their photo series „WHITE“. Therefore they work with bright white light as a key element. As we see the reduced, shadowless, bright pictures, we face the illusion of infinity. Horizons and borders seem to disappear and we dive into waves of white and materialized emptiness. Michael Manfé (cooperation work with Katrin Froschauer, Christian Zwerschina)
